(Hot) Air Ball [rimshot]

August 18th, 2014 by Rebel Mope

Like all Americans, Kareem Abdul Jabbar is entitled to his opinion. Including pontificating on the coming “race war”. There are, however, a few points Mr. Jabbar prefers to gloss over.

After he points to the Kent State shooting as a catalyst for change, he writes:

You probably haven’t heard of the Jackson State shootings.

On May 14th, 10 days after Kent State ignited the nation, at the predominantly black Jackson State University in Mississippi, police killed two black students (one a high school senior, the other the father of an 18-month-old baby) with shotguns and wounded twelve others.

There was no national outcry. The nation was not mobilized to do anything. That heartless leviathan we call History swallowed that event whole, erasing it from the national memory.

Erasing it from the National memory, indeed. Well, except for Wiki:

A group of around a hundred African-American students had gathered on Lynch Street (named after John R. Lynch), which bisected the campus, on the evening of Thursday, May 14 to protest the United States invasion of Cambodia during the Vietnam War.[2] By around 9:30 p.m. the students had started fires, thrown rocks at white motorists and overturned vehicles, including a large truck. Firefighters dispatched to the scene quickly requested police support.

Mr. Jabbar then goes on to suggest poverty as a rallying point for change.

The U.S. Census Report finds that 50 million Americans are poor. Fifty million voters is a powerful block if they ever organized in an effort to pursue their common economic goals.

Let’s just assume for the moment that Mr. Jabbar’s statistic of “50 million Americans are poor” is accurate. This is an indictment of LBJ’s failed policy of a ‘War on Poverty’. Liberal policies were supposed to end poverty. Fifty years of liberalism either created more poverty or they fudged the numbers to continue the charade.

Then it gets good:

I’m not saying the protests in Ferguson aren’t justified—they are. In fact, we need more protests across the country. Where’s our Kent State? What will it take to mobilize 4 million students in peaceful protest?

Oh, I don’t know… 4 million students that stay in school so they can get good jobs? Ever seen the drop-out rate of students in urban areas?

Because that’s what it will take to evoke actual change.

Oh, I don’t know, that peaceful protest thing hasn’t worked out too well for Fr. Phlegar with all the shootings in Chicago. But let’s spend one minute listening to what his message is.

(Skip the first 30 seconds.)

Sorry about that. But I had to do it to show you what, exactly, this war on poverty means: They want us all poor. You see, if we are all dirt poor then there will be no looting. Or something like that.

The middle class has to join the poor and whites have to join African-Americans in mass demonstrations, in ousting corrupt politicians, in boycotting exploitative businesses, in passing legislation that promotes economic equality and opportunity, and in punishing those who gamble with our financial future.

We now understand how the middle class will join the poor under Obama, but why do whites have to join African Americans? Whites elected Barrack Obama to the highest office in the land and that magnanimous gesture has been dismissed out of hand. Why can’t African Americans join whites now that we know what a complete and utter failure he is? And if there really is 50 million in poverty why are we allowing more impoverished people to cross the border unchecked?

If we don’t have a specific agenda—a list of exactly what we want to change and how

Oh, I think Mr. Jabbar has a ‘specific agenda’. It’s “Change you Can Believe In”- the same communist crap Obama was peddling.

Makes one wonder if Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Barrack Hussein Obama are communists because they have Muslim names or if they have Muslim names because they are communists.

 

The Cow Pie War

April 12th, 2014 by Rebel Mope

We haven’t had a good range war in several decades. This one is heating up nicely.  Some 200 federal agents have descended on Clive Bundy’s ranch rustling cattle and generally making a nuisance of themselves. His ranch has been in his family for  generations, some reports say since the 1870′s. Until the 1990′s the BLM charged for grazing rights and used the money to help the rancher build his property. Then they stopped using the money for that purpose but still charged the fee.

The government claims they are protecting the ‘desert tortoise’. That’s like a snail darter, delta smelt or a spotted owl, only different. The same ‘desert tortoise’ the government cared so much about they decided to euthanize them. The only problem with that assertion is Harry Reid (D-Nevada) changed the boundaries of the ‘desert tortoise’ so that his son, Rory, who happens to be involved with the Chinese in a Solar Farm Project in the same area, could get a handsome commission. It was on the BLM’s website until the guano came in contact with the oscillating devise. Then it was removed.

Some reports suggest the cattle are being euthanized. Where’s PETA?

Now word comes that certain ‘militias’ are heading to this range war to protect the ranch from snipers and low flying helicopters. Government snipers have a propensity to ‘accidentally’ hit women and children.

You will, of course, recall the case of the North Dakota rancher Randy Brossart. When 6 cow wandered onto his property he demanded payment before their release:

Brossart and his family face various criminal charges that relate to a conflict they got into with law enforcement officers after six cows from a neighboring farm wandered onto their land. Brossart declined to return the cattle to their owner until he was paid for the feed they had consumed. When police got involved, three of Brossart’s sons allegedly chased the officers away with guns. In the end, a drone was deployed, Rodney Brossart was repeatedly tased and then arrested, and the cows were handed over.

Brossart had drones from the Dept. of Homeland Security tracking him without a warrant for essentially the same dispute over just 6 cows. In Nevada, 600 cows wander onto BLM land and the government confiscates them for not paying grazing fees.

In the end, Brossart was forced to apologize, and given a 6 month sentence. The judge had this to say about the case, which applies to the Nevada case as well:

“This case should have never happened,” state District Judge Joel Medd said in court. “Chalk it up to stubbornness, to stupidity, to being at odds with your neighbors or any combination of those. We should never have been here if the cows would have just been returned.”

I concur.

Boehner’s Happy Campers

January 31st, 2014 by Rebel Mope

Today I was left another dropping. It came in the form of an e-mail from the GOP inviting me to send them some cash. “Send us some money or you’ll have to live under democrat rule.” Oh no. These guys can’t even jin up scary thoughts for their own supporters. I mean, really, what is scarier, democrats that we have had to deal with for the last five years or republicans that hate their base? And, Chris McNulty (twitter @GOP ), sending the e-mail with the subject line of “[No Subject] (2)” as if you had answered my last missive, was cute. A bit condescending, but cute. It just reminded me that you didn’t answer my last e-mail.

But I do know how to get you to listen, Mr. McNulty. It came to me while I was researching a eastern religion/cult. It is so simple in complexity it is staggering. And the perpetrators can be unemployed for years. There can be no stopping them. Their lives will have meaning again, just like the lives of the illegal aliens John Boehner wants to legalize, only different.

First, lets look at Boehner’s last election. His vote total was 142,731 in 2010. Generally speaking, in a primary election you have about 30% of that vote. 42,819.

Mr. Boehner has a challenger this cycle. His name is Eric Gurr. Mr. Gurr is severe conservative, like Mitt Romney, only different. He means it. I don’t know Mr. Gurr, except what I read, but Boehner isn’t listening, so he has to go.

Eric Gurr, CEO of a computer consulting firm says he will challenge Boehner, primarily because of two things: Boehner’s position on immigration reform and his support for U.S. military involvement in Syria. (Boehner says he supports incremental immigration reform, but Gurr won’t have any of that).

We now know Boehner supports more than “incremental reform”. He supports full-mental reform.

The primary election is May 6, 2014 in Ohio. And as you might expect, the eligibility laws are very stringent:

Ohio law requires that every voter, upon appearing at the polling place to vote on Election Day, to announce his or her full name and current address and provide proof of the voter’s identity.

The forms of identification that may be used by a voter who appears at a polling place to vote on an Election Day include:

  • A current and valid photo identification card issued by the State of Ohio or the United States government; or
  • A military identification (“military ID”); or
  • An original or copy of a current utility bill; or
  • An original or copy of a current bank statement; or
  • An original or copy of a current government check; or
  • An original or copy of a current paycheck; or
  • An original or copy of a current other government document, other than a voter registration acknowledgement notification mailed by the board of elections, that shows the voter’s name and current address.

 

According to the Domestic Mail Manual, the Post Office is required to deliver mail as marked on the envelope.

1.0 Recipient Options

1.1 Basic Recipient Concerns

1.1.1 Delivery to Addressee

Addressees may control delivery of their mail. Without a contrary order, the mail is delivered as addressed. Mail addressed to several persons may be delivered to any one of them.

 

If you tell them where you will receive it, they must get it to you, it might take a while, but by law, they must give it their best effort. And if you tell them where you are, they will have no excuse.

Which brings us to The Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. He sort of devised this plan in the ’80s. You see, a homeless person cannot be denied the right to vote. A campsite is a mailing address. And the Public Library will no doubt be delighted to mail you a library card. All you have to do is tell the letter carrier where to deliver it, or stop by the local post office and tell them you want “General Delivery”. Once you have the library card, you go register to vote. Just remember to register before April 6th, and that your campsite is in OH-08.

Come to think of it, a letter from the unemployment office would do nicely as it would reflect a higher rate of unemployment in the district.

The Bhagwan came up with 7,000 registered voters. With only about 21,410 votes needed to get Mr. Boehner to listen and an already viable candidate, I’m sure just the sight of 10,000 campers will bring Mr. Boehner to tears.

Hell, the sight of a good steak would bring him to tears, but that is another problem.

Be a happy camper, dump Boehner.

That Ship of Fools

January 16th, 2014 by Rebel Mope

300px-Mavi_Marmara_side

 

When we last visited the saga of the Mavi Marmara, one of the ships in the Gaza Flotilla, along with The Audacity of Hope, and the Rachel Corrie (obviously a flattop) and several others, it was the subject of a legal action that accused it’s owners and donors of material support for terrorism by violating the Neutrality Act of 1794.

Israel had imposed a blockade of Gaza and the flotilla attempted to run it.

Consequently, as these things usually do, a commission was empaneled to set blame.

Turkey is particularly upset by the conclusion that Israel’s naval blockade is in keeping with international law and that its forces have the right to stop Gaza-bound ships in international waters, which is what happened in the 2010 episode. That conclusion oversteps the mandate of the four-member panel appointed by the United Nations secretary general and is at odds with other United Nations decisions, Turkey argued.

 

From Wiki:

Nine activists were killed in the raid: Cengiz Akyüz (42), Ali Haydar Bengi (39), İbrahim Bilgen (61), Furkan Doğan (18), Cevdet Kılıçlar (38), Cengiz Songür (47), Çetin Topçuoğlu (54), Fahri Yaldız (43), and Necdet Yıldırım (32).[18][127][128] All of the dead were members of, or volunteers for the İHH.

That would be the Turkish Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief (İHH).

Which brings us to Tuesday’s NY Times:

Turkish anti-terrorist police raided the offices of an aid agency on the border with Syria on Tuesday, in part of what local media said was an operation in six cities against individuals suspected of links to al Qaeda.

The Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) said police had raided its offices in the southern Turkish city of Kilis, which borders Syria, and detained one person.

 

Then it gets worse:

Among those arrested was Ibrahim Sen, al-Qaida’s Middle East deputy, who was released from the U.S. prison camp in Cuba in 2006, Today’s Zaman reported Monday.

 

Sen has a lawsuit against Donald Rumsfeld which is in the appeals process:

On February 1, 2013, two years and nine months after the motions to dismiss had been fully briefed, Judge Lamberth dismissed the plaintiffs’ claims. Plaintiffs have filed an appeal to the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and expect to brief the case over the course of 2013, arguing inter alia that the three plaintiffs who were determined to be “Not Enemy Combatants” by their CRSTs have cases that may be distinguished from those of the plaintiffs whose claims were dismissed by the D.C. Circuit in Rasul v Rumsfeld.

The appeal to the D.C. Circuit has been fully briefed and the case is set for oral argument at 9:30am on Friday, February 21, 2014 before Judges Brown, Tatel, and Randolph.

 

I think that ship has sailed.

We know who wears the mom-jeans in that family

January 13th, 2014 by Rebel Mope

 

Frank Marshall Davis, who penned a thinly veiled memoir celebrating his and his wife’s sexual relationship with a 13 year old girl stated:

“The number of white babes interested in at least one meeting with a Negro male has been far more than I can handle.”

I wrote about him before and have seen the pr0n shots allegedly of Ann and I think it is safe to say there is a culture in The Movement. A kind of War on Women, if you will.

Activist Stokely Carmichael articulated the general vibe in an infamous, and candid, response.  When asked the role of women in the Students for a Democratic Society,  Carmichael replied, “The position of women in the movement is prone.

Fifty years later, at the memorial service for the greatest Community Organizer in like EVAH we get treated to this:

BbItGNECcAAt3Xh.jpg large

Look how stoic Mrs. Obama is. She is so sweet. They are just having a little fun.

BbIRHYrCUAI8-4Z.jpg large

Uh oh. The Eye™. This is going to leave a mark.

images

How charming, how chivalrous. He kisses her hand because he knows when she bashes him it’s going to be sore.

And look at Ambassador Susan Rice behind Mrs. Obama with the “Oh boy, are you in trouble” look.

What was he thinking? Who is that woman?

Helle Thorning-Schmidt and her husband Larry Kinnock

Helle Thorning-Schmidt and her husband Larry Kinnock

Is that your Gheydar going off? Larry is the son of Neil Kinnock, who was plagarised by Joe Biden some time ago. Neil was also involved in the Oil for Food Scandal. But here’s where it gets good…

Their marriage became the subject of intense speculation in the Danish press, with one newspaper raising questions over Mr Kinnock’s sexuality. Confronted with the allegations, Miss Thorning-Schmidt was forced to publicly deny Mr Kinnock was gay. ‘I can only say it’s not true,’ she declared.

Ooooo. A duodenum spelunker?
So off the Obama’s go to their usual Hawaiian Holiday, scheduled for 17 days, only a day or so before it ends, Mrs. Obama cites her upcoming birthday as the reason she is staying for an extra two weeks or so. Leaving Barry and the girls to fend for themselves, with the help of Mrs. Robinson, of course. And the White House staff. She really wants to celebrate her birthday without her husband and daughters? Pulease.
The foreign press is having none of it:
The First Lady reportedly claimed following the photograph incident that she was humiliated in front of hundreds of millions of people in the world that watched the ceremony.  The report alleges that she yelled at her husband because she is “tired of it” and it is difficult for her to absorb such a humiliation because of his actions.
Other reports claim that the couple has been sleeping in separate rooms in the White House since the incident and that Michelle turned to a divorce lawyer to handle the matter, in order to ensure that she will receive half of their shared property.  An official in Washington even appraised that the couple will end their relationship and that it appears like a “sure bet.”
OMG! A divorce lawyer. Is that higher than a Constitutional Law Lecturer?
“I’VE had enough!” Furious first lady Michelle Obama hurled those fight­ing words at her husband after he publicly humiliated her by flirting with a leggy blonde foreign leader at South African icon Nelson Mandela’s memorial ser­vice, sources say.
OK. It’s the National Enquirer. To that I’ll just say: John Edward’s love child.
Maybe the Danish Prime Minister likes her men… Dainty.

The White House rarely comments on the first couple’s private life, and there was no official confirmation last week of where Michelle was staying in Hawaii, or when she intended to return.

Yet the security umbrella that surrounds the couple descended on the Winfrey estate where The Daily Caller, a Washington news website, claimed Michelle was staying with a small group of female friends including Valerie Jarrett, a senior White House adviser, and Gayle King, a television presenter and close friend of Winfrey.

To quote Stokley Carmichael again:

“The position of women in the movement is prone.

Well, Michelle isn’t going to take that lying down. Not without The Oprah™ and Gayle King.

 

The Privileged Class

September 17th, 2013 by Rebel Mope

Of all the left wing insanity we have had to endure these past few years, this just tops it all. It’s like watching sausage being made.

In its attempt to define who’s a journalist and who’s not, is the US Senate trying to say that Thomas Paine, a corset-maker, wouldn’t have deserved the same protections from government heavy-handedness as a newspaper publisher like Ben Franklin?

The first version of a media shield law that handily made it through the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday defined for the first time what constitutes a “real reporter” deserving of extra protection versus what Sen. Dianne Feinstein called a “17-year-old blogger” who doesn’t deserve a legal shield.

The cynical side of me says this is merely a consolidation of power. The left has nailed down all the journalism jobs in the dinosaur media and is attempting to nail the door shut by controlling who gets into J-school- thus who gets this new ‘protection’. But it is far more insidious than that.

Let’s go to the video tape…

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Common sense would dictate that the defining of a ‘journalist’ by Congress would reasonably be deemed an abridgement of ‘the press’, but let’s not let a silly piece of paper get in the way of important business of the Senate. We all remember how leftists enjoy their stupid titles of nobility. Like Barbara Boxer:

I have long advocated the next president should issue White House press passes to right wing bloggers foregoing the Dino-media and their Eason Jordan mentality. Think of it as ‘progress’. For the childruns.

Recently, Vladamir Putin allegedly wrote a piece for the New York Times. The New York Times, being broke, had to cut out the middleman and go directly to the source. Walter Duranty would be so proud. Maybe Vlad will get a Pulitzer for that piece. Who knows, stranger things have happened. Like Obama getting the Nobel Peace Prize for doing… well, nothing.

Leading from behind!

Leading from behind!

H/T 

Here’s where we get to the nitty-gritty:

“All we’re doing is adding privilege to existing First Amendment rights, so there is, logically, zero First Amendment threat out of this,” said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, (D) of Rhode Island.

I have written about ‘privilege’ before, but let’s go through it again, shall we? A privilege is a permission to do something that would otherwise be a tort. In effect, the Senate is issuing forth license to the dead-tree media to protect it from slander and libel, while at the same time bloggers are placed on notice.

The notion that somehow ‘privilege’ adds to a ‘Right’ is at the same time laughable and depressing. Even the Supreme Court has ruled a Right cannot be converted into a privilege. (Don’t make me find the citation.) Explained a different way: Suppose an idiot politician were to say they are going to make breathing air a privilege. You would still have the Right to breath air, but they were just adding privilege to the Right. How fast could you find the tar and feathers?

Update:

I got yer ‘privilege’ right here:

TACOMA, Wash. – Legislators headed to work can’t get speeding tickets — or so says the Washington State Patrol and at least one local police department.

A spokesman for WSP says Washington lawmakers are constitutionally protected from receiving noncriminal traffic tickets during a legislative session, as well as 15 days before. A spokeswoman says The Tacoma Police Department abides by a similar policy.

State Patrol spokesman Bob Calkins says the privilege not only applies to moving violations near the state Capitol in Olympia, but potentially anywhere in the state.

 

Burning Down the House

July 13th, 2013 by Rebel Mope

From The Washington Times via Gateway Pundit:

The legal watchdog Judicial Watch released an audio recording Thursday of a Department of Justice staffer urging Sanford, Fla., city officials and the minority advocacy group Dream Defenders to seek justice for Trayvon Martin, because “if a community perceives that there’s something wrong in the black community, there’s something wrong.”

That’s right, screw every other community that perceives this to be wrong. This is the Administration rewarding the race-baiters with the full weight of the Federal government. The Justice Department has gone out of it’s way to accommodate these hustlers in their quest for Zimmerman’s scalp. But it’s not about Zimmerman. This has more to do with the anti-gun crowd making a statement.

Wait. It gets better.

“CRS is an arm of the department that we call the Peacemakers,” Thomas Battles, regional director of the DOJ’s Community Relations Service, said at a meeting at the Shiloh Church on April 19, 2012. “We work with communities where there is real or perceived racial tensions.”

Mr. Battle’s statement indicates he understands there is a difference between real and perceived, by his use of the word “or“. In the world of race-baiting, perception is reality. You can see how this ‘perception based reality’ works when you tune on the news and this case gets wall-to-wall coverage as Benghazi, the IRS gestapo tactics, Fast an Furious, and a host of other scandals are pushed to the back burner for this astro-turfed rent-a-mob.

Let’s continue, before my pyloric valve explodes.

“…When Trayvon happened, for many of us, it was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back,” he continued. “We had grown up in a state and environment where race is a way of life … We’re not from Sanford, but what Sanford represented to us was the very real problems going around this state and this country. We wanted to figure out how could we stand in solidarity, and how could we make this about not just justice for Trayvon, but using this moment and using the opportunity to honor his memory, to honor his spirit by working to bring down the various structures and the various systems that allow something like this to happen.”

Mr. Battle is admitting that he job at the Justice Department is to destroy structures and systems. The structures and systems that allow people to defend themselves. There is no distinction between the law abiding and the thug. This is about destroying any semblance of justice. He has ousted a police chief, and taken over the investigation into the truth. The judge has pulled out the stops to see to it that Zimmerman gets convicted. Of something, anything.

The conversation about the guilt or innocence of Mr. Zimmerman is irrelevant. Don’t even bother. The conversation is about whether or not justice died in this country. When justice can be meted out by ‘perceptions’, make no mistake, it’s dead. When a judge can tell a defendant “You have the Right to remain silent, are you going to testify?” and then DEMAND an answer from said defendant, what you have is tyranny. Or a tranny. Whatever.

So yeah, go ahead and burn down the house. We’ll build another. And you will find out how unpleasant it is to stay outside when the weather gets crappy. Go ahead burn that bridge. When you are done you’ll have to stay on your side.

Slash and burn works really well. Until the fields lay fallow.

 

 

Ginger or Maryanne?

July 5th, 2013 by Rebel Mope

At least once in the life of every 29 year old hacker the question arises: Ginger or Maryanne?

The “Ginger” honey trap

The Maryanne’s cupcakes honey trap.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thus is the dilemma for former NSA analyst Edward Snowden.

“The simple message “Snowden, will you marry me?” was posted to Chapman’s personal account Wednesday.”

That’s going to leave a welt on the alphabet agencies in Foggie Bottom.

As National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden continued to cool his heels in the transit zone at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport, waiting to hear a positive response to one of his many asylum requests, he received an unlikely marriage proposal via Twitter from ex-Russian spy Anna Chapman.

Forget the charges of Treason and espionage, this poor lad has women problems. When the pole dancing acrobat finds out Chapman proposed we are going to see the mother of all cat-fights!

Meanwhile, back in Mother Russia, Vlad Putin has (allegedly) a new girlfriend.

“I’m smitten, Kitten”

Honey, let me show you my Superbowl Ring.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I dub thee “Vlad the Impaler“!

The First Amendment under Assault

May 14th, 2013 by Rebel Mope

Don’t for a moment think this was an accident lapse in judgement. It’s right there in Saul Alinski’s playbook, #13:

Washington (CNN) – Officials at the Internal Revenue Service knew in June 2011 that their agents were targeting conservative groups for additional scrutiny on tax documents, an inspector general report to be released this week is expected to say, according to a congressional source familiar with the inquiry.

Further, an early timeline of events compiled by the inspector general and obtained by CNN indicates the agency’s practice of singling out conservative groups began as early as March 2010, and in July of that year, unidentified managers within the agency “requested its specialists to be on the lookout for tea party applications.” In August, specialists were warned to be on the lookout for “various local organizations in the tea party movement” applying for tax-exempt status. The specific criteria would change several times over the next two years, according to a portion of the report.

Let’s recall what was happening back in March, 2010. Like this:

This was Nancy Pelosi with her gavel marching with her minions to pass the Health Care Act, on a Sunday no less, March 21, 2010. This is the march that members of Congress reported they were spit on and racial epithets were hurled. The TEA Party bristled with indignation. The planned to have these people removed from Congress. They would organize. They demanded repeal.

A week later, after passage of this monstrosity (“We have to pass the bill to find out what’s in the bill.”), the Hutaree militia in Michigan was arrested by the Joint Terrorism Task Force.

The Hutaree Militia was a group who could have had their own reality TV show like The Duck Dynasty if it hadn’t been for a current Supreme Court Justice. Two weeks before they were arrested in late March (28-30) of 2010 on charges of seditious conspiracy, they were out in the woods helping local law enforcement look for a lost child.

Two years (to the day) after their arrests came the ruling which I wrote about:

In a sharp rebuke, a federal judge today acquitted seven members of a Lenawee County militia group of plotting to overthrow the U.S. government with weapons of mass destruction.

U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts said federal prosecutors failed in five weeks of trial to prove that the Hutaree had a specific plan to kill a police officer and attack law enforcement personnel.

That’s gunna leave a welt.

From the Order:

Stone, Sr:

Josh Stone:

Tina Stone:

David Stone, Jr.

Michael Meeks:

Now Sickles:

Piatek:

I will update this entry as time provides, but suffice it to say this was all about the Health Care debate. These arrests happened one week after the House passed ObamaCare and certain representatives claimed to have been spit on during their march through the TEA party opposing the passage.

Don’t ever forget Elena Kagan was the Solicitor General at the time, when these people were granted bond by this judge. She have to approve the appeal of the bond. She kept these people in jail for political purposes. [emphasis added]

The prosecutor was asked about the acquittal, which at the time I also wrote about:

In her first remarks since the case was gutted, U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade said she wouldn’t have handled the case differently and “strongly” disagrees with the judge’s interpretation of federal conspiracy law.

She can disagree all she wants, and she certainly has the right to do so, but that’s not the scary part. The scary part is she hasn’t learned anything from this defeat.

Militia members are finding that resuming their lives isn’t easy. Despite his acquittal, Michael Meeks of Manchester, Mich., said he can’t open a bank account yet because the bank told him he’s still on a terror watch list.

Completely exonerated and he can’t even get a bank account.

Told of the troubles, McQuade didn’t seem moved.

It’s the consequences of their actions,” the prosecutor told the AP.

This is how vindictive these people are. Elena Kagan, then the Solicitor General refused these people bond, knowing this case was either flimsy at best or political at worst. Either way she should be impeached for this behavior.

Now the IRS has admitted to breaking the law to prevent TEA Party activists from gaining a tax exempt status. What should the “consequences of their actions” be?

I’m thinking “seditious conspiracy” fits here.

Additional reading for those interested.

Let’s not forget, the AP wiretap by the DOJ.

I’m with the Revolutionary!

May 3rd, 2013 by Rebel Mope

Yes, kiddies, I’m siding with the Revolutionary despite this report:

 

Florida House and Senate budget leaders have awarded Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw $1 million for a new violence prevention unit aimed at preventing tragedies like those in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo., from occurring on his turf.

His turf, mind you…

“We want people to call us if the guy down the street says he hates the government, hates the mayor and he’s gonna shoot him,” Bradshaw said. “What does it hurt to have somebody knock on a door and ask, ‘Hey, is everything OK?’ ”

Well for starters, you would have to knock on that door armed. And what would you do if no one answered the door? Go back and get a warrant, or just kick the door down with your jackboot? A armed resident could require  as many SWAT members as were necessary for the Normandy Invasion.

Hating your government shouldn’t create an Oxbow incident. It’s not as if this sheriff holds an Orb and sepulchre. Obviously, this sheriff needs some horse cents- because silence is golden. Or in this case that would be GoldenCents.
